Damian Priest makes WWE Raw debut, appears with Bad Bunny
Damian Priest arrived on Raw on tonight’s post-Royal Rumble episode of the show.
In his Raw debut, Priest defeated The Miz. The match was set up by a Miz TV segment where rapper Bad Bunny appeared as the guest.
Miz went to use his Money in the Bank briefcase as a weapon during the match, but Bad Bunny pulled it out of the way. Bad Bunny then dropped John Morrison with a microphone shot. Miz was distracted and then got hit with The Reckoning by Priest. Priest pinned Miz to get the win.
Priest was also an entrant in Sunday’s men’s Royal Rumble. He eliminated Miz, Morrison, Elias, and Kane during the match.
Bad Bunny performed his song “Booker T” live at the Royal Rumble. After a backstage segment where Bad Bunny refused to collaborate with The Miz and Morrison, Miz destroyed Bad Bunny’s musical equipment. Bad Bunny then hit a crossbody from the top rope on Miz and Morrison after they were eliminated from the Royal Rumble by Priest.
Bad Bunny and Priest were shown backstage together on tonight’s Raw. During Miz TV, Miz and Morrison again tried to get Bad Bunny to help them record an album. Bad Bunny said he wasn’t interested and then told Miz and Morrison that he was only there because he had a friend who wanted to be on Miz TV. Priest came down to the ring and dropped Miz with a forearm.
Priest’s call-up to the main roster had been imminent since he lost to Karrion Kross at NXT New Year’s Evil last month.
